Three Florida races are too close to call. Here are the latest election numbers.

How does an election recount work?

Florida law requires an automatic recount in a race in which the difference in vote totals is half a percent or less. The law requires a manual recount if the difference in the vote totals is 1/4 of a percent or less.

Three of Florida’s statewide races are within the margin of error to trigger a recount: The governor’s race between Democrat Andrew Gillum and Republican Ron DeSantis, the U.S. Senate race between Democrat Bill Nelson and Republican Rick Scott and the race for Florida’s agricultural commissioner between Democrat Nikki Fried and Republican Matt Caldwell.

Not all ballots have been counted yet. These are the latest numbers from the races that will likely need a recount.
